I don't know if this issue has been addressed, but I just thought I point it out. I have been downloading most of my shows as the whole zip. Whenever I download them, the text file is messed up and doesn't look like the original. I basically fix this by going back to link for the show and copying/pasting the original information. Is there going to be a way in the new version of the archive where the text file comes out like the original? I am sure that most people don't care, I would just like to see if it might be a feature. Let me know.

this is a Mac/Linux to Windows issue. the only fix is a notepad app that views text differently

If you use a PC, I think you can open one in Wordpad (as opposed to Notepad) and it will look normal. Save/overwrite it from there and it should be OK.

If you use a Mac, I don't know what works for that.

Diana,

Thanks for the info. I like to use Notepad more than Wordpad, so I think I will just continue to use the method that I do. Peace.

For Mac users, I'd recommend BBEdit Lite, which you can grab from http://www.barebones.com/products/bblite/index.shtml - it's no longer being developed but it's a terrific program.
